Welcome to Gunung Mulu National Park


Few national parks anywhere in the world pack so many natural marvels into such a small area. Home to caves of mind-boggling proportions, other-worldly geological phenomena such as the Pinnacles, and brilliant old-growth tropical rainforest (the park has 17 vegetation zones), this is truly one of the world’s wonders.

Among the remarkable features in the 529-sq-km park are its two highest peaks, Gunung Mulu (2376m) and Gunung Api (1710m). In between are rugged karst mountains, deep gorges with crystal-clear rivers, and a unique mosaic of habitats supporting fascinating and incredibly diverse wildlife. Gunung Mulu’s most famous hiking attractions are the Pinnacles, a forest of razor-sharp limestone spires, and the Headhunters’ Trail, an old tribal warpath down to Limbang.

Flashlight is useful for examining the guano-covered cave floor and its population of insects. Deer Cave visit is combined with Lang’s Cave, whose entrance is a short distance away from that of Deer Cave. Lang’s Cave is the smallest of the show caves but its rock formations are well worth seeing. These are made all the more attractive by the strategically positioned spotlights which highlight stalactites and stalagmites. As the cave is relatively small and well-lit, it offers good opportunities to see some of its inhabitations such as bats, swiftlets and even cave-dwelling snakes. After exploring the caves, proceed to bats observatory to observe bats flying out of caves entrance at late afternoon. Between 5 and 7pm, if the weather is fine, visitors may be treated to the spectacular sight of a black cloud of free-tailed bats emerging from the entrance of the cave to go in search of food. Return journey on the same plank walk to park headquarters.(D) DAY 2 - Breakfast at Mulu and transfer with longboat to Batu Bungan - Penan's native Sarawak settlement to observe the tribe lifestyle and to select handicrafts on display for sale at Penan Settlement. Journey then continue with longboat to Wind Cave and Clearwater Cave.
